Great read for an e freebie. Non-stop action with nice world building based on Greek mythology. More violent than I expected but it didn't revel in it or glorify it. The romance was sweet without being saccharine.

The heroine, Casey, is the outsider, smart & savvy but not in the know, learning about the new world and the new rules. The hero is complex and capable, learning to tap into his human side. The secondary characters are very well done, with the underworld gods particularly interesting. The Greek gods are almost as fun (but not quite) as in Marie Phillips' Gods Behaving Badly.

This writer is being compared to Sherrilyn Kenyon (because of the Greek mythology themes) - I was thinking plot wise more about Kelley Armstrong. Either way, this was a good read.
